Leave it up to the Germans to take something and improve on it with their wonderful engineering skills. Take the Sushi Roller, a simple and elegant little gizmo that with a few turns of the handle will help you create delicious Maki rolls. From the brilliant Looks Feels Works website:
I know that sushi is a traditional Japanese food, but look what a German design firm, osko + deichmann, has done to bring the process of making sushi into the 21st century. This is a great new application to an established mechanism used to roll tobacco, but it is still clever.
Now anyone can roll sushi, or anything for that matter. I'd love to try to roll a few desserts, or make lasagna rolls, with this! Sushi, being a traditional japanese dish, has been becoming increasingly popular in europe and the united states over the last decade. Recently sushi is being transferred from the restaurant to the home.
